A trick to remember is to consider what you are left with at the end of your problem.
IE: If you are looking for work done, what does the formula W=fd contains,
It contains a force or f expressed in kg*m/s^2(if you are left with kg*m/s^2 you are left with a newton)
multiplied by a distance (d) in meters (if you are left with m you are left with a distance in meters)
So if you are left with kg*m^2/s^2 you are left with joules.
You cannot convert Newtons to Joules - they measure different things. If you do not understand this you are WAY below A level standard.
Newtons are units of force.
Joules are units of energy.
Clearly, a force can do work and so can be related to energy. But so can many other things. This does not imply a conversion.
newtons arent for the same thing as joules.newtons are for force, joules are for work done, so you can't do a conversion.
p.s:if you need help on physics, email me!!;)
Aren't you a little young to remember Juice Newton? Oh, wait...

How do you convert Newtons to Joules please?
I probably should know this but I don't! So I'm asking for the simplest conversion mehod possible, preferable at A level standard or below. Thankyou! A slightly harassed student.
